Grieving the loss of a loved one can be challenging. Creating memorials and honoring their memory can help you move through the healing process. Cremation jewelry is one tool that can be used to memorialize and grieve the loss of a loved one.
But cremation jewelry isn’t limited to women. Men’s cremation jewelry is helping men find comfort in style. With designs for all tastes, men can find jewelry options that honor a loved one’s memory and complement their personal style.
The Demand for Men’s Jewelry – and Cremation Jewelry – is on the Rise
The world of fashion and accessories is changing, and men’s jewelry and accessories are at center stage. These changes are not surprising, as over the last few decades, a cultural shift has occurred in men’s fashion and the definition of masculinity.
More men are embracing accessories and jewelry as part of their personal style. Celebrities like Jake Gyllenhaal, Johnny Depp and Harry Styles have all been spotted on red carpets wearing gold rings, gold chains or other flashy jewelry pieces.
We’re also seeing many celebrities going outside of the normal chain and bracelet options and wearing more:
Flashy may not be the personal choice for every man, but it’s more accepted than ever for men to wear necklaces, bracelets and other jewelry pieces.
While men now have more options than ever, some types of jewelry are more popular than others.
Leather bracelets, for example, are one of the most popular and sought-after types of men’s jewelry. They’re versatile and rugged and can be paired with either formal or casual outfits. However, they do require special care, as exposure to moisture can damage the leather and shorten its lifespan.
Men are also drawn to signet rings, which can carry a sense of tradition and heritage and can be customized.
As more men become adventurous and bold with their jewelry options, the definition of masculinity will continue to evolve.
Today, men’s jewelry is viewed as another tool for self-expression and a way to make a statement.
With more men now open to the idea of wearing jewelry, the market for men’s cremation jewelry has also grown. Cremation jewelry can serve as a tangible memorial and a tool to move through the grieving process.
You'll want to understand your own style and taste to find the right piece for you. A few questions to ask yourself are:
Does this piece match me as a person?
Is this a piece that I’ll wear regularly?
Will this piece match the clothes I wear when home and in the office?
Often, loved ones will wear cremation jewelry everywhere. If you need to take the item off when going to work every day, you may not find a good time to actually wear it.
We know firsthand that the jewelry most of our customers prefer is items that they can wear anywhere. Our collections include pieces that are designed specifically for men, and we do have options for women, too.

Demand for cremation jewelry is on the rise as more people opt for cremation over burials. They can be purchased in addition to cremation urns as a way to memorialize a lost loved one.
Cremation jewelry serves, in a way, as mini urns for ashes, holding just a small amount of the person’s ashes. In this way, you can carry your loved one with you wherever you go.
For many, jewelry is a more effective way to grieve and celebrate a lost loved one compared to urns for human ashes. Why? Because they are small, tangible things that you can hold in your hand or carry with you always.
People choose cremation jewelry for a number of reasons:
To Feel Close to Your Departed Loved One
One of the primary reasons people wear ashes jewelry is to feel close to the person they lost. A cremation bracelet or necklace holds a pinch of the person’s ashes, so you can carry your loved one with you always and keep them close to your heart.
For many people, cremation jewelry brings a sense of comfort and helps them through the grieving process. They are able to take a piece of their loved one with them wherever they go.
To Have a Visible, Tangible Memorial
An ashes bracelet or necklace can serve as a visible and tangible memorial for a lost loved one. Whether the design is subtle or obvious, jewelry is something that can be worn daily and serves as a reminder of the memories you shared with that person.
In this way, cremation jewelry can help keep the person’s memory alive.
A Conversation Starter
For some people, part of the grieving process is talking about their lost loved one. Sharing memories and talking about their grief and pain can be a powerful part of the healing process.
Cremation jewelry bracelets or necklaces can be very visible and obvious memorials of a departed loved one. And that can serve as a conversation starter, allowing you to talk about the person you’ve lost.
Men’s jewelry is making a comeback, and many men are now feeling more comfortable wearing bracelets and necklaces that match their personal style. In that same sense, more men are choosing to wear cremation jewelry with subtle designs that allow them to grieve and memorialize their lost loved ones. These jewelry pieces are like small urns for human ashes that you can take with you anywhere.
The TadBlu product line was designed with men in mind. The minimalist style complements all lifestyles and serves as a subtle memorial for your lost loved one. Our collection of men’s cremation jewelry also includes other designs that can celebrate the person’s personality and life.
There are many different ways to scatter ashes in the United States, and most states have favorable laws. Working with a funeral home or crematory may make the planning process less stressful and help you understand what is permitted and what is not permitted.
Doves, butterflies, and the Tree of Life are three profound and prominent symbols that represent life, death and rebirth. We incorporate these symbols tastefully in our urn collections, allowing you to memorialize your loved ones in ways that are meaningful to you.
